In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

  1. MrLester is always on the mark.

    The push to raise the minimum wage ties to union contracts, but that isn’t where the most damage will be done
    What the low -infos, or the low wage people don’t get is that with higher wages, you pay more taxes.
    Not only that, they lose all those golden freebies they expect – they’ll have to use their own wages to buy their food, save some bucks to pay the rent, and of course lose all that pity they think they deserve for being uneducated and without a skill.

    1. Well, I get depressed every time I read the latest about Greece’s economic situation. There’s a country that was the cradle of democracy, was virulently anti-Communist in the 20th century, and now it’s a pathetic third-world nation. They brought it on themselves, of course, but it’s still depressing. The other amazing thing is that they are still getting waves of illegal immigrants from N. Africa and the ME, so it’s only going to get worse. And the Lo-Fos and Socialists don’t think that could happen here?

      1. Right. I wonder how the uneducated, feral immigrants are supposed to fit in with the current Greek society?
        Of American illegals, too – just where did an additional 10 million people find a place to live here?
        Did we have that many empty homes and apartments?
